Aligarh man claims he got threats for having ‘Jai Sri Ram’ ringtone on his mobile

Manish Agarwal, a resident of village Jalali in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh has put his house up for sale and has declared his intention to leave the area for reportedly being threatened by goons belonging to a particular community. These goons were reportedly irked by the fact that Manish had a ‘Jai Sri Ram’ ringtone on his mobile.

On 24th March at about 8:30 PM, Manish, who owns a garment store and is a BJP worker, was standing outside his shop. At the same time he received a call on his phone and his ‘Jai Sri Ram’ ringtone started playing. Reportedly irked by it, Yasin the owner of a nearby medical store and his few friends rushed towards Manish and started threatening him.

Yasin reportedly ridiculed him by calling him a ‘big Ram Bhakt’ and threatened to kill him just like his ‘Baba’ was killed. They allegedly warned that Manish won’t be allowed to live in Jalali anymore. The ‘Baba’ in question is Manish’s grandfather named Mool Chand Agarwal, who was reportedly murdered on 17th March 1958.

Manish claims that two of those who threatened him were serial offenders with as as many as 10 pending cases against them. Another resident named Ved Prakash, also claimed that he was similarly threatened, though he hasn’t filed a case yet. A video of their statements is available:
